Donaghu began working for Landmark just over 20 years ago in Los Angeles, and served in a variety of positions, eventually becoming the manager of all Landmark’s regional controllers, and finally becoming the executive for all the Centers Division administration.
Said Landmark CEO Harry Rosenberg, “Kathy leaves behind an enormous legacy of contribution and making a difference. Her spirit lives on in the people of this enterprise.”
Centers Division Director Joan Rosenberg added “Kathy Donaghu is my hero. She was smart, she was sharp–everything she did, she did well, she did excellently. Kathy lived what anyone would agree was a more than successful life.”
Landmark’s Chief Information and Technology Officer, David Gerber, worked closely with Donaghu, and added “Kathy was a pro. She was one of the most practical people I’ve ever been around. I knew she always had my back, and she always had the back of the staff in our Centers. She loved Landmark and she loved our education, but she loved our Center staff maybe more than anything in her life besides her family and baseball. She was open, giving, funny, confident, competent, and really smart. And I’m proud to say she was my friend.”
A celebration of Donaghu’s life will take place with her family and friends on Friday, November 30th, from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. There will be no formal service or speeches. The event will be held at the Chianti Room at Tuscany Falls Country Club, 16262 Clubhouse Drive, Goodyear, AZ 85395.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Cancer Society through her daughter Amy Donaghu’s fundraising page. Amy Donaghu, who is also a Landmark staff member, is participating in the Arizona Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon this January in honor of her mother, raising funds for the American Cancer Society, of which Kathy was a strong supporter.
